KCCR radio reports that Gov. Dennis Daugaard attended Thursday's ceremony. He says the plant is the first of its kind in the state and adds another piece to South Dakota's value-added agriculture industry.

The 11,000-square-foot, $4.5 million South Dakota Pulse Processors plant will employ about 10 people. It's expected to start operations in the spring.
